Free - £2
Anne Pia Credit: Luath Press/Language of My Choosing

Be nourished over lunchtime with stories and poems from women writers around the world, as we rediscover the joy of being read to.  So far this year we’ve had our wanderlust unleashed with tales of St Kilda, our appetites whetted by banquets on Indian train journeys and our funny bones tickled by the weird and wonderful world of bookshops. Our Story Café Specials are an intimate way of hearing some of the freshest voices from Scottish writing, so top up your cuppa from our big, bottomless teapot, get yourself comfy and become a part of it all.

Story Café is on Thursdays 8th June to 29th June, 27th July, 3rd August, 24th August to 31st August, 12.30pm to 2.30pm, £2/Free

Where do I truly belong? Anne Pia grappled with this question whilst growing up in the Italian-Scots community in Edinburgh, in the aftermath of the Second World War.  Her memoir, ‘Language of my choosing’, explores the challenges of living between two cultures, and is brimming with characters full of contradiction, humour and eccentricity.  At its heart it is a celebration of three generations of women, telling their story of resilience, determination and aspiration.
